"In the dark and steamy jungles of Madripoor, the flashing claws of Logan, the blazing bullets of Cyclops, and the dashing fists of the Angel met with wave after wave of beserk headhunters, all willing to protect the secrets of the Temple-Tomb of Cyttorak with their lives! The ancient treasure map of mercenary Cain Marko, with its siren-song of the priceless gigantic ruby of the fabled god-king, had lured them only into the icy claws of Death!" Parental Advisory $3.99

    All in all, this is a pretty good start that not only stands on its own as an original and entertaining story, but also throws in references to X-Men history and characters by the handful. You don't have to know who everyone is in the mainstream continuity and you don't have to have an encyclopedic knowledge of X-Men lore in order to follow the story, but if you do, there's a little more for you to enjoy. It probably wouldn't hurt to check out X Men Noir just to find out how our characters got to where they are, but I wouldn't say it was essential. But it couldn't hurt. Read Full Review
